Can't speak for Solaris or compiling, but I would suggest you get
the SVN windows installer (or even the binaries only, but for a first
setup the installer is surely the better thing), too, and install SVN.
Then go to the httpd folder within the SVN folder and copy the two
mod_*_svn.so files into the modules folder of Apache. Do the
same with libdb42.dll, ssleay32.dll and libeay32.dll in the SVN
folder. You must stop Apache before.

While getting the SVN windows installer at
switch over to http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/ and look for FAQ a/o
documentation (there was some rumor lately that one actually has
to follow a link named "Support" or "Service" or similar, sorry,
dunno better, have not been there since some time). There you will
find a chapter with a very good description of how to set up Apache
for SVN. That's what I followed originally. BTW you may also wnat
to get TortoiseSVN as client for Windows. It intergrates with
Windows explorer, but also works from the context menus of other
filemanagers/apps and has about everything one may need for
creating a repository and checkout/update/commit/merge and all
the other day-by-day and not so day-by-day operations.

Hope this helps.
